is regarding pentagon little if any. so i think its controversial choice. >> jamie: would hagel survive a senate hearing? let's bring in ron bongene and margie o'meara. great to see both of you. it seems like both sides of the aisle agree that senator hagel can get a fair hearing but why is he best choice from democrats point of view? >> i think it's a strong choice from a really united american point of view. he earned two purple hearts. he is a republican senator who has not been part of the partisan bickering that people have grown to hate here. he has been endorsed by five former ambassadors to israel. he voted for $40 billion in aid to israel. he has been endorsed by four former security advisors and all those folks that have been appointed by republican and democratic administrations. i think he is strong pick and it would make sense for people to come together and confirm. >> jamie: do you think he was the president's first choice? >> i think certainly he has been a key pick. he has been somebody the president has been working with closely and think he has had a real relationship

a bloated pentagon was two years ago. since then both parties have agreed that the budget needs to be scaled back. and $487 billion has been cut over the following ten years. now the debate is how much more we should cut. my own view is we can cut a little bit more but not as much as sequestration would require. so again the confirmation hearings are going to be excellent opportunities to get into these matters. i don't know what senator hagel things about how much more deeply we can cut, he should be asked. but the pentagon was bigger than it needed to be in 2011 and that's commonly accepted idea at this point. >> jennifer: that's interesting. so that might be a bit of a red herring or at least an unimportant factor but the obama administration is reaching out to jewish groups to get his nomination. do you think statements related to israel are going to pose a problem for him? >> i don't know. i think it will cause some problems yes. it will probably lose him some votes, but i have been under the spotlight a lot less in my life than you have or senator hage
